Film director Spike Lee has recently unloaded on both President Trump and Hillary Clinton and even insulted the President on a personal level. Lee also said that Hillary Clinton was wrong to think she was entitled to the presidency during an interview this week.
As Breitbart reported, during a short discussion with Hollywood Reporter at the Film Festival in Cannes, the director of the Do The Right Thing did not go soft on the President: “He’s not my president. I call him Agent Orange.”
“There was some clip I saw yesterday of him dancing with the Saudis that was just ludicrous,” said Lee about the President’s recent foreign visit to Saudi Arabia. “Not only is he not a good president, he can’t dance either,” Lee said while laughing. “He could be impeached on his rhythm. He’s the clown with the nuclear codes.”
During the election season, Lee supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in a radio ad past February and condemned the “rigged” primaries in the Democratic Party.
When Lee was asked whether he thought of supporting Hillary Clinton for president, he slammed the former Democratic hopeful.
“Have you read the book Shattered? Great book,” said the director of the new Clinton campaign tell-all, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign that gives a blistering behind-the-scenes look at how Hillary lost the presidential bid.
“Hillary comes with entitlement. They thought they were entitled to this and despite what you might think, you gotta work,” said Lee. “If you’re chilling at Martha’s Vineyard, and think ‘It’s a done deal.’ But it wasn’t. There’s one thing you can learn from sports. To quote Yogi Bear: “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” They thought it was theirs. Shit don’t work like that.”
In addition to this, Le also said that he wouldn’t back actor and former professional wrestler Dwayne Johnson as a presidential nominee without first knowing his views. Dwayne Johnson has been mentioned as a likely candidate of the Democratic Party to run in the 2020 presidential race.
“No. Well, I’d need to know how he stood on issues.” stated Lee, adding that Dwayne’s presidential ambitions, real or not, come off as ingenuine, considering Trump’s jump from show business and TV host to 45th president. “The thing is, everyone thinks they can be president. Like, “Look, that guy did it.”
